South-East Europe

The Regional Forum establishes and maintains contacts with Southeast European institutions and companies, participates in trade fairs and organizes trips and conferences in order to accelerate the business development of German companies and water management institutions in Southeast Europe.

The Regional Section meets 2-3 times a year to coordinate activities and exchange information on individual countries. The focus is on cooperation and commitment to the activities in order to operate as closely as possible to the target markets. So far, several GWP Days have been successfully organized in various countries and special lecture formats have also been held at IFAT and Wasser Berlin International (WBI).

The close exchange between the German representatives and the contact to international partners opens new project opportunities and gives them good opportunities to enter the markets.

The focal points of the work and the goals of the forum are regularly adapted to the interests of the participating companies. The current focus countries are: Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

TCC Danubio

Out of the forum the training and competence center “TCC Danubio’s” was founded in 2014, which offers a wonderful cooperation platform for active companies. In cooperation with German companies, this initiative is currently offering training mainly in Croatia and Serbia. Through the training measures the companies involved establish very good contact with representatives of the sector in the respective countries and at the same time provide them with details about new projects and developments at an early stage.
